Wiping our hands on the face after making dua?


Recommended Posts

Q. can you tell me if there is a hadith or something that says we should wipe our hands on the face after making dua? Some people said its Bidat
(Query published as received)
It is Sunnah to wipe the hands over the face after making Dua. The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) advised that upon the completion of Dua, a person should wipe his hands over his face. Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Abbas (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said:
“Ask Allah with your palms and do not ask Him with the back of your hands, and when you complete your Dua, wipe your face with your palms” (Abu Dawood, Hadith #: 1487)
Sayyiduna Umar bin Khattab (Radiyallahu Anhu) narrates:“The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) would not lower his hands whenever he raised them in Dua until he wiped his face with both his hands” (Tirmizi, Hadith #: 3386)
